. >> that's a shock. >> this beautiful photograph. we were in the white house last wednesday. obama posed for a picture, and then we did a terrific interview. the story is by michael scheerer, white house correspondent. and i know you got -- joe, i know you predicted it. i tuned in yesterday. i think it's kind of impossible to do an alternative choice. >> there's sometimes you've got to do that. >> he's a dominant figure. you know, this couple of amazing statistics, is he the first president since fdr to win with a majority of the vote in consecutive terms. he did that, you know, against an unemployment rate that was higher than anybody has ever won against except for roosevelt, 75 years ago. and i think the -- you know, part of what our story did, michael scheerer really was the first person to write about, you know, the data crunchers in the obama campaign. but all that showed, it wasn't just about demography, but it was about how the country really has changed and really is changing. and these changes that we've talked about are here right now. i mean, this amazing statistic is t

lenty and trying to vet bloomberg. >> none of them. >> obama changed the entire dynamic. it is a changed year, sir. we desperately need a game changing pick. none of these middle aged white guys are game changers. >> ed harris is just remarkable. john mccain didn't always come across so well in the book. times when he was fumbling through papers, going with bernanke and paulson about the melt down that seems every bit as disconnected. this movie he comes across as 100% grade a all american hero. why did he make that decision? >> i admire john mccain and admire especially early john mccain and was a fan for years and i think he found himself in a very tough pickle in the beginning of this story. obama was surging in the polls. it was all kind of going to a very tough place when he had to make the decision. i felt i want the audience to be in his shoes and look at the dilemma he faced. especially when people say you can take this risky choice or you can lose. i want people to relate with them at that moment. casting ed harris is part of it. i think he's a dynamic and thoughtful per

white house press secretary and former senior adviser to the obama campaign, robert gibbs, who looks like he's on a ski vacation. >> very casual. is he in washington or colorado? >> i wish i was in colorado. >> nbc news chief white house correspondent political director and host of "the daily rundown," chuck todd is with us as well. >> don't you know the trick? above the waist is all you have to worry about. you could have faked it. i mean, mika's wearing shorts, right? >> he's got his jammies on. >> i think the seriousness of what's going on is matched by my outfit. >> so you're wearing pajama pants with bozos all over them, right? >> more or less. >> so let me just ask you a question. it's sort of big picture. this was set up over two years. everybody put this deadline in place to force washington to confront the nation's debt. this was a big deal, this deadline. and we're going to come out of it with either nothing and go over the fiscal cliff, or some small piddly kick the can down the road, i'm so tired of that statement, little mini push it off thing. what are we doing here? >>

in a few minutes. >>> unfortunately, we deal with incompetent. this afternoon president obama whim wil set down with congressional leaders at the white house for a last ditch effort to avoid going over the fiscal cliff. the hope is both sides can agree to a compromise to prevent the economy from sliding back into recession. judging from the rhetoric on capitol hill, there's a long way to go. here's the day on the hill. >> if we go over the cliff we'll be left with the knowledge that could have been prevented with a single vote in the republican-controlled house of representatives. the american people i don't think understand the house of representatives is operating without the house of representatives. it's being operated with a dictatorship of the speaker not allowing the vast majority of the house representatives to get what they want. >> we're coming up against a hard deadline here, and as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. republicans aren't about to write a blank check for anything senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the e
